Atlantic Christian College 


"Wilson, the seat of Atlantic Christian College, is ideally 
located for a college town. The main lines of two railway 
systems pass through it. The Atlantic Coast Line, running 
north and south, makes splendid connection with all the branches 
of that system. The ISTorfolk Southern running east and west, 
makes easy access possible from these directions. 

Wilson is a beautiful city of 12,000 population, with electric 
lights, filtered water, successful sewerage system, and good 
health record. In the center of a prosperous farming section. 
Its churches, representing the leading denominations, have 
handsome edifices of worship and are in a flourishing condition. 

In such a center of religious, political and business influence 
our students come in contact with some of the greatest preachers, 
doctors, lawyers and business men of the State, and such oppor- 
tunities are not to be undervalued. 

Historical Sketch 

The fifty-seventh I^forth Carolina Christian Missionary Con- 
vention met at Kinston, N^. C, October 30 to ISTovember 2, 1901. 
The Committee on Education, consisting of D. W. Davis, B. H. 
Melton, W. J. Crumpler, E. A. Moye, and Dr. H. D. Harper, 
made a favorable report for the purchase of Kinsey Seminary, 
in Wilson, N. C, from the Wilson Educational Association. 
According to the report of this committee, which was duly 
adopted, the Board of Managers of the 'N. C. C. M. C. were 
to act as agents of the Convention in acquiring this college 
property, and were to appoint four trustees to have immediate 
supervision of college. The institution was named Atlantic 
Christian College and incorporated May 1, 1902. Mr. George 


8 Atlantic Christian College 

Hackney, of Wilson, N, C, was made Treasurer of the College, 
and about $4,000 was contributed tbe first year. The building 
was taxed to its utmost capacity with students at the college 
opening in September, 1902. The college property was bonded 
for the original indebtedness of about $11,000 in 1902, which 
was fully paid in 1911. The payment of this debt made acces- 
sible the "W. ]Sr. and Orpah Hackney Memorial Fund," which 
was bequeathed "for the education of worthy young men and 
women," and which consisted of real estate in Wilson to the 
value of about $3,000. In 1911 there was built a modern brick 
dormitory for men, on the campus, at an expense of about 
$15,000. In 1914 there was acquired a 672-acre farm in Onslow 
County, two miles south of Jacksonville, N. C. The Carolina 
Enlargement Campaign in the summer of 1920 yielded the 
college for endowment in cash and good pledges, $156,677.70. 
The College was recognized as a standard A-grade College in 
May 1922 by the North Carolina State Board of Public 

The following have presided over the institution : J. C. 
Coggins, 1902-1904; J. J. Harper, 1904-1907; J. C. Caldwell, 
1907-1916; K. A. Smith, 1916-1920; H. S. Hilley, 1920—. 

Grounds and Buildings 

The college is located in a quiet section in the northern 
part of Wilson. The campus occupies a large city block of 
about six acres. The two main buildings are substantial brick 
structures. Heated by steam and lighted by electricity. Mod- 
ern plumbing and adequate bath facilities contribute to health 
and comfort. The furnishings will compare favorably with 
similar institutions. 

Co-educational Policy 

The institution is co-educational. The supervision is so 
close and vital, however, that we feel all objectionable features 
have been practically eliminated. 

General Information 9 

In the dormitory for young women the lady teachers reside 
on the same floor with the young ladies. The oversight and 
care is substantially as exclusive as in institutions for women 

The young men have their own dormitory. A small athletic 
field with tennis and basketball courts furnishes adequate 
opportunity for recreation and sport in the open air which 
in this climate is possible almost every day in the year. 
Several men of the faculty, reside in the boys' dormitory. 
Thus we endeavor to secure such results by close supervision 
and care as will beget the best in study and in character 

Keligious Culture 

Frequently young people going from home to college advance 
mentally, but retrograde morally. We endeavor to make this 
impossible at Atlantic Christian College. We care for character 
as well as intellect. We keep our students in a good moral 
atmosphere, throwing about them proper restraints and safe- 
guards, and giving them counsel. 

Every morning the students and professors assemble in the 
college auditorium for chapel exercises. The services are con- 
ducted by members of the faculty and visiting ministers of 
the Gospel. Brief addresses and lectures are given on religion, 
morals, good manners, temperance, the choosing of professions 
and vocations in life, etc. Visitors are always welcome. 

Students are required to attend Sunday school and church 
service at some church each Lord's Day. 

The young men and young women maintain their own special 
prayer meetings in each of the buildings. These meetings do 
much to develop the devotional spirit and the power to express 
publicly their devotions. 

The religious interests and welfare of the students are fos- 
tered by a standing committee on Keligious Education. A 
comprehensive plan has been prepared for the coming year 
and will be thoroughly executed. 

10 Atlantic Christian College 

The Young Women's Christian Association is a constantly 
increasing source of strength and inspiration to the young 
women who want to make the most of their college life. At 
the regular meetings there is profitable discussion of devotional 
topics. Moreover, the members of this organization may enjoy 
the privileges of the widely known Students' Conference at 
Montreat, !N. C, each June. A Student Volunteer Band was 
organized in 1922 and has grown in number and power. 

Literary Societies 

There are two Literary Societies : the Alethian and Hesper- 
ian. These organizations are very active and hold their meet- 
ings on Monday evening of each week. 

Clubs and Societies 

There are among the students various social clubs and also 
certain societies to promote different interests. Students in 
Expression maintain a Dramatic Club, which has social meet- 
ings and which presents plays from time to time; students in 
Science have organized a Science Club. The Ministerial and 
Missionary students have a joint club called the Fellowship, 
which seeks to promote the welfare of that group of students. 

The Education Club is composed of students who expect to 
teach and strives to foster higher ideals of that profession among 
its members. 

Prizes and Awards 

Excellence in certain lines of college activity is recognized 
by awarding of prizes each year. The Faculty loving cup is 
awarded to the student who has the best general record in 
college, the Rotary cup to the best student, and the Kiwanis 
cup to the best athlete. The Williams cup is presented to 
the society winning the annual inter-society debate. A medal 
is given to the best orator each year and the Denny cup to 
the society presenting the best progi-ams throughout the year. 

These awards are made on Commencement Day. 

General Information 11 


College sports, such, as football, basketball, baseball and tennis 
are encouraged. Good tennis and basketball courts are main- 
tained on the campus for both women and men, while League 
Park is available for inter-collegiate sports. 

While athletics is generally cultivated by the student body 
and encouraged by the faculty, it has not become the chief 
factor of our student life. Those who make the ball teams are 
required to be bona fide students. We do not desire a man who 
comes preeminently for athletics. Students who play match 
games with other colleges must have a class standing of passing 
grade on 12 hours work at the time of the contest. jSTot more 
than five days absence during any semester is permitted any 
student for the purpose of sport. 

The Radiant 

But few publications of the kind excel The Radiant^ issued 
quarterly by the students of the college. Through its columns 
opportunity is offered for genuine literary culture. It is also a 
powerful means for the gendering and expression of a healthy 
and clean college spirit. Through it every student who has 
something to say and can worthily say it finds avenue for his 
contention or sentiment. 

The staff is elected from the student body and alumni under 
the general direction of the Committee on Publications. 

The Pine Knot 

The Pine Knot^ the College Annual, represents our be^t 
manhood and womanhood. It represents also the business 
energy, civic pride, and hearty liberality that has placed 
Wilson among the best towns and cities of our Southland. With- 
out the generous support of the business men of Wilson this 
splendid publication could not be made. Without the hearty 
cooperation of our students and friends it could not exist. 

With becoming pride, therefore, we present it as the pledge 
of our common interest. 

12 Atlantic Christian College 

The BuUetin 

Through this publication the college makes announcements 
promptly, and prints news of general interest for its numerous 
friends, thus bringing the institution into a close touch with 
its constituency. It is issued each ISTovember, February, May, 
and July. 


We have installed a library of over five thousand volumes 
of well selected books, which have been carefully catalogued 
and indexed. In connection with the library is a reading room 
supplied with the leading magazines and serials, which students 
can use when they have spare moments. The librarian will be 
in constant attendance during open hours. 


The Biology Laboratory is located on the first floor of the 
main building and is equipped to meet every need arising in 
both elementary and advanced work. The equipment consists 
of simple and compound microscopes, and other apparatus for 
general Biology, Anatomy, Emibryology, etc. 

The Chemistry laboratory occupies a large well-lighted room 
on the first floor of the Boys' Dormitory. The equipment in- 
cludes demonstration and individual apparatus for work in 
General Inorganic Chemistry, Qualitative and Quantitative 
Analysis, and Organic Chemistry. 

Modern apparatus has recently been materially increased 
in both these laboratories and they now offer admirable facilities 
to pre-medical students and students majoring in either Chem- 
istry or Biology. 

A laboratory for General Physics was installed in the sum- 
mer of 1923 and is adequately equipped for the course afforded. 

EeserTation of Booms' 

The rooms previously occupied are reserved for former stu- 
dents until July the 1st. A deposit of five dollars is required 
for the reservation of the room after that date. This will be 

General Information 13 

credited on first quarter's expenses, or, if notice is given in 
writing three weeks before the opening of the school that the 
student cannot attend, the money will be refunded. Beginning 
July the 1st room assignments will be made to new students 
in the order in which their applications have been received. 
!N"o room can be claimed unless the deposit has been made. 

What Boarding Pupils and Teachers are Required to Furnish 

One pair of blankets or comforts, quilts, sheets, white bed- 
spreads, one pillow, two pillow-cases, towels and table napkins, 
soap, laundry bags, and toilet articles. Each young lady is 
required to have in addition both a raincoat and an umbrella. 
All articles, including trunks and valises, should be marked 
distinctly with the owner's name. Each student should bring 
knife, fork and spoon, as table cutlery cannot be sent to rooms. 
All beds in Boys' Dormitory are single, while there are in 
Girls' Dormitory both single and double beds. An effort will 
be made to meet wishes of students in supplying either single 
or double beds. "We advise those who desire to make their 
rooms cosy and attractive to bring rugs, sofa pillows and 

Disciplinary Policy 

It is the aim of the institution to have members of the 
faculty to reside in the buildings with the students. This affords 
the best possible opportunity for that personal contract and 
care for which the institution stands. The splendid opportu- 
nities now offered by our schools are preparing pupils for col- 
lege at too immature an age for them to be free from, all re- 
straining influence. 


All students when arriving at the college should report at 
once to the college office and matriculate, and be assigned to 
specific rooms and classes. 

14 Atlantic Christian College 

Matriculation obligates all pupils to conduct themselves with 
propriety on all occasions, and to conform to all rules that 
may be made for their government. 

A fee of ten ($10) dollars is charged all full-time literary 
students for matriculation, and is due and payable in full at the 
time the student is assigned to classes. This fee may be in- 
creased to $15 if m.atriculation is deferred beyond the time 
set apart especially for this work by the college. 


Students are required to keep their own rooms in order, 
and are held responsible for any damage to furniture or 

Meals will be sent to the rooms in case of sickness only, 
and then by order of the matron of the dormitory. 

Students residing in the dormitories will not leave the campus 
at any time without the knowledge and consent of the dean 
of men or dean of women. 

Other necessary regulations will be made by the faculty. 

Chapel and Sunday Services 

All students will be expected to attend chapel exercises daily 
and Sunday school and public worship once on Sunday. Pupils 
are permitted, to attend the church of their choice or that 
with which they or their parents are affiliated. 


All communications concerning the men must be made to 
the dean of men, and concerning the women to the dean of 
women, and not sent through the students. 

Parents and guardians should mail direct to the President 
of the College all drafts, checks and money orders, and not 
send through the student. 

Parents will receive notice in case of serious illness. Please 
inquire of the dean of men or the dean of women before taking 
action in case of sickness. 

General Information 15 


Yisitors are always welcome at the college. Kooms are 
equipped in each dormitory for their entertainment. A nom- 
inal charge of 35 cents per meal is made to cover cost of material 
and service. Students and teachers will obtain from the matron 
of the dormitory meal tickets for their guests. Students may 
have guests only Avith the consent of the dean of men or dean of 

All visitors, while our guests, are under the same regula- 
tions as students. 


!N^eedful permission will he granted to the young men by 
the dean of men, to the young women by the dean of women. 
Permissions to be absent from the college for week-ends will 
be limited and in some cases may he denied as not for the 
best interest of the student or the school. 

The attention of parents is called to the injurious effects 
of such absences and their cooperation is sought in diminishing 
them. Requests should only rarely be made. 

On all occasions students are required to come directly to 
college after reaching Wilson. 

Parents coming to Wilson, and desiring to see their sons or 
daughters, will please call at the college. 

Students are not permitted to go down town in response to 
telephone requests. 

Day Pupils 

Students residing in Wilson, while on the campus, are subject 
to the same regulations as boarding students. 


1. Examinations. During the last four days of each sem- 
ester final examinations will be held in all classes. 

2. Special Examinations. Students failing to take a test 
or an examination at the stated time may take it at a special 
hour by paying one dollar. 

16 Atlantic Christian College

School of Music 

Ivy May Smith, Director 

The aim. of the School of Music of Atlantic Christian Col- 
lege is hroad and far-reaching. It wishes to create in its stu- 
dents a desire for knowledge of the highest possible standard; 
to develop such desire in the right direction, surrounding its 
pupils with musical atmosphere just as far as it is possible 
to do so; to educate its pupils on broad lines and get the best 
results obtainable in the shortest possible time. 

It is essential for students of the School of Music to receive 
training in the Liberal Arts School, that they may have suffi- 
cient knowledge and understanding to become thorough and 
capable students of both the science and appreciation of the art. 

The school is well equipped throughout with splendid pianos. 
The practice rooms are furnished with upright pianos in good 
tune and repair. The studios are large, comfortable and at- 
tractive for teaching. The Auditorium, where all recitals are 
given, contains a concert grand piano and an upright piano. 


The School of Music offers thorough and concise courses in 
Piano, Voice, and Public School Music along with such courses 
as are indispensable to the educated musician of today : General 
Theory, Harmony, Counterpoint, Musical Form, Appreciation 
of Music, Sight-singing and Ear-training, Ensemble playing, 
and History of Music. 

The prescribed course of study in all departments places 
emphasis upon comprehensive study of the modern systems 
of technic and compositions of the Classic, Romantic, and 
Modern periods. The course of study for piano is systematically 
divided into six grades : two grades of Preparatory work and 


School of Music 55 

four years of Collegiate work, offering two distinct courses — 
the Teacher's Course and the Artist's Course. At the begin- 
ning of the Junior Collegiate year the work will be molded 
according to the pupil's intention. If he is fitting himself 
for teaching, he will receive special instruction along lines of 
pedagogy; or should he wish to become a concert pianist, par- 
ticular attention will be given to accumulating a repertoire of 
solos. A wide range of musical literature will be required 
with these courses. The Leschetizky technic is taught. 

The course in Voice Culture offers four years of Collegiate 
work including theoretical and history courses. 

The course in Public School Music aims to develop its stu- 
dents, so as to be prepared to meet in an efficient manner all

in the development of the pupil's talent, self-confidence and 
executive ability. The recitals are regularly attended by the 
faculty and students of the college and their friends. 


Ensemble playing is of inestimable value to the student 
who wishes to become a proficient sight-reader and accom- 
panist. The practice is for two pianos — four or eight hands. 
Self-control must be cultivated. The general musicianship of 
the student improves as the student becomes familiar with 
many of the standard masterpieces, for a vsdde range of litera- 
ture is studied. .-^

whether their specialty be Piano or Voice. The student is
